Since I opened this can of worms!!

Here's more of what I think...(bear in mind, I am a libertarian, so I'm not a huge fan of big government, no matter who is in charge.)

I'm not heartless, I hope someday, all Americans can have access to quality, affordable healthcare. This bill is not the answer.

I think employers should provide health insurance but without government control or intervention.

Government run programs take away from our free trade and capitalism which encourages business to succeed and prosper with hard work. Government mandates will reduce this drive for success and begin to make us complacent and expectant. We should not expect the government to provide us with everything. Believe me, it's a trade off, and nothing in this world is free.

Some people are victims of circumstance and have fallen onto hard times. Perhaps the Healthcare Bill can be reworked to provide a system for those who CHOOSE to participate, for whatever reason, be it unemployment, or severe financial hardship.

I do believe in helping those who need it. I DO NOT believe in forcing everyone else to participate in a plan that doesn't work for us.

The current healthcare system as is has many flaws, but a this bill is not any better. In my opinion, it tries to do control way too much.

Once again, go read it (and interpret it) for yourself.

If you like it, then make your voice heard. I don't like it, and I don't want it, so I will do the same.

I don't like it and I don't want it either. Period.

I hope it is offered to those who need it, and I also would like to see the government put a choke hold on the greedy insurance and pharmaceutical companies.

Of course, I doubt that will happen, but a girl can dream.

Socialism. That's what it is. I like this post as well. Thanks for the link, I plan on reading and analyzing the whole thing. I completely agree with you on all the above mentioned points. They don't need to socialize health care. Yes, they need a non-private option, but they shouldn't force people into it. And I REALLY do not like the part where they can basically choose to kill you.
